StagePas 300 to Olympus LS-10 - Direct Recording


I use an Olympus LS-10 http://www.wingfiel… to record an Yamaha StagePas 300 output during our singing club sessions and I currently do this using the remote control and the Olympus twin microphones on the LS-10 unit itself but I am sure this isn't the best way.

What I would like to do is connect the StagePas 300 directly to the Olympus LS-10 and record that way.

I'm new to this site & I need help with a problem involving direct recording my amp.

I am trying to record my Line 6 Spider IV 320W combo amp by plugging it straight into my Focusrite Scarlett 2i2 USB interface from the Headphone/Out jack on the Line 6. I have actually, successfully recorded a few guitar parts in this way but it's really sketchy because it will randomly cut in & out. I'll get that little ding on my computer (the noise it makes when a usb is plugged in or unplugged). I only have this problem when going through my amp. Plugging straight into the interface I have no problem but when going through the amp I constantly have this issue.

Direct Recording with a effect in LP8/motu828mk2

basically, i have Shure ksm27/Avalon 737sp/motu828mk2/art X4 headphone amp.Specs lp8/ppc g5 quad.osx10.4.11 buffer @ 128
yesterday i was recording and i wanted to add a effect like reverb etc but i dont want to effect the latency.
then i started researching and notice ive been recording whilst software monitoring was on and ive had a little latency but never noticed till my friend commented (complained) on it.

Line 6 direct Recording Help

Hey I have a Line 6 Flextone II, which I record directly. Does anyone have experience with Line 6 direct recording? I'm in a dorm room in college so its kind of hard to record with my 57. But anyway is there anything special to recording direct out with line 6? Do you just simply plug it in and record? Because I feel like I'm not getting that good of a recording. And I know Line 6 PODs have been used in many professional recordings. The only thing I can think of is having a tone problem. Maybe my tone is bad?

Direct Recording


I've decided to not bother with the hassle of Micing my cabinet and would prefer to go direct. Would it work if I were to simply go:

Guitar -> Amp Head -> Mixing Board

or would anyone suggest I be using a cabinet emulator inbetween the amp head and the mixing board? I've not played around with any cabinet emulators so I'm a bit concerened if they will mess with the tone I've made on my amp head.

Any help would be appreciated.
